 What’s New 

What's New: Back to Red Square One?

| September 8, 2014

Never since the collapse of the Soviet Union has there been a more convincing time for a renaissance of communist theory than today. From Graeber to Zizek, Marxist thought is more popular than ever before. And yet, 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, after the supposed "end of history," and despite the deepest crisis of global capitalism ever, nobody seems to be advocating a return to communist politics. Why?

What's New: Big Bam pour la Gratuité

Manifestation pour la gratuité du transport en commun à Québec le 31 août 2014.

What's New: The Making of Global Capitalism

| September 7, 2014

Sam Gindin, former Research Director of the Canadian Auto Workers union and co-author with Leo Panitch of The making of global capitalism graciously agreed to answer questions from NP board members about his book when he and I participated in a conference at the Center for the Study of Work, Labor, and Democracy at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The interview is broad-ranging and clarifies and expands ideas in the book.

What's New: Fast Cities

| September 6, 2014

Investing in transit infrastructure is essential to relieve gridlock in Canada's cities and provide commuters with convenient ways to get around. However, not all cities are improving their transit systems to the same degree, and some are falling behind.

What's New: People's Social Forum in Ottawa

Bullet #1032: Déjà Vu in Edinburgh

by J. F. Conway | September 5, 2014

It was hard not to remember the 1995 Quebec sovereignty referendum as one walked the streets of Edinburgh in August. The Yes (Yes Scotland) and No (Better Together) sides campaigned relentlessly everywhere: tables in the streets; posters; TV ads; constant references during many Fringe performances. The city and the country were polarized.

What's New: Buenos Aires: Building a People-Friendly City

by Clarence Eckerson, Jr. | September 4, 2014

Buenos Aires is fast becoming one of the most admired cities in the world when it comes to reinventing streets and transportation. Just over a year ago, the city launched MetroBus BRT (constructed in less than seven months) on 9 de Julio Avenue, which may be the world's widest street.

What's New: Why LeftRoots?

| September 4, 2014

LeftRoots is a national formation of Left social movement organizers and activists who want to connect grassroots struggles to a strategy to win liberation for all people and the planet. While mass organizations must be central features of strong and vibrant social movements, Left cadre formations are too. The U.S. Left, due in part to external assaults and in part from internal weaknesses, is at this point unable to cohere these mass struggles into an effective force for revolution.
